About Our Rescue Group:

Illinois Doberman Rescue operates as a not-for-profit organization based in Northern Illinois. The goal of Doberman Rescue is to rescue Dobermans in need, to place them into responsible homes, and to educate the public about the Doberman breed. Our Rescue Dobermans come from animal control organizations, humane societies, and owner give-up situations within Illinois, Wisconsin, Iowa and Indiana.

After entering the program, our Dobermans are spayed or neutered, fully vaccinated, heartworm tested (and given monthly heartworm preventative), and microchipped (a computer microchip placed in the dog's lower neck for help with identification should the animal ever become lost). While awaiting adoption, most of our Dobermans live in foster homes throughout Illinois where we attempt to evaluate their temperaments, learn their behavioral quirks, and work on basic manners and obedience.

We endeavor to place each Doberman into a home best suited for that individual dog. Some factors we take into account include the dog's reaction to children, other dogs, and cats. We carefully screen all applicants since we want to ensure that each adoption is a good match and provides a permanent home for the dog. We maintain contact with our adoptive families and encourage them to contact us in case of any questions or problems.

If for any reason the rescued Doberman is not working out in its new home, the adoptive home is legally required to first contact IDR to allow us the option to accept (or decline) the return of the Doberman back into the IDR program.

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES will we place our Dobermans into

a home where they will be forced to live outside, or to serve as outdoor "guard" dogs. It is our most heartfelt desire that all of our "kids" be adopted into loving homes and be accepted as part of the family on a permanent basis.

We only adopt to families within Illinos or the surrounding states. We also do not ship our dogs.

Our Adoption Process:

The IDR+ process contains 5 steps as designated below.


*IDR now requires a fenced yard if you have children under 5 years of age.

We request that you complete and return our Illinois Doberman Rescue Application, which asks that your provide us with both a veterinarian and personal reference. Please note that it is mandatory that your existing pets are both up-to-date on their vaccinations and spayed/neutered (unless there is a medical reason or you are showing your dog in conformation-both will require proof). We have devised a vaccination protocol which can be read below.

We do not adopt dogs out as gifts for many reasons. You could possibly offer the surprise of adopting, but it is best everyone is together to choose the new family companion.

You may choose to submit your application by way of regular mail. You may choose to fax or email your application. Mailing address and email/fax information is listed on the top of the application. Note: During this process you may be working with a number of different members of our group.

Please fill out an application and send it to:


P.O. Box 435

Barrington, IL 60011

Fax: 847-745-0471


While we are reviewing your application, you may call to inquire about any of the dogs on our "Available Dobermans" It is important that you inform the foster parent that you have submitted a copy of the application.
